is on the path to defeat. >> we decimated the leaders. >> on the path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> we decimated al qaeda central, eliminated osama bin laden. >> al qaeda is much weaker than it was when i came into office. >> osama bin laden is dead, and general motors as a live. >> the war in afghanistan is coming to a close. al qaeda is on the path to the feet. osama bin laden is dead. >> today the core of al qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan is on the path of the feet. the remaining operators spend more time thinking about their own safety and plotting against us. lou: joining us now, radio talk-show host, fox news contributor, former reagan political director, fox is political analyst. thank you both for being here. a defeat for al qaeda, and today we are watching the united states close 19 of our facilities in the middle east and north africa. your reaction? >> my reaction is that the president obviously did what he thought he had to to get reelected instead of talking in terms of an ongoing threat. he made some progress, but it's an ongoing threat that will be the the rest
is that there was some kind of electronic intercept between at least two top al qaeda leaders. the successor of osama bin laden , and the head of the yemen branch of al qaeda. a source telling fox news, the message involved old-fashioned means we have seen al qaeda use before, including tory ears and that the message was circulated to a number of key al qaeda members. so, yes, intelligence officials are joining in the administration's war on words of fighting over whether the al qaeda uses conference calls or chat rooms and will lay of some of the measurable absurdity of it all tonight in the "chalk talk." also ahead, retired four-star army general and former army vice chief of staff, general jack keenan joins us to weigh in and now the white house is handling the security threats. what, a different type of threat that could potentially wipe out all cell phone communications, and injuring gps navigation and radio and television transmissions and all the while having the power to knock out this nation's power grid. we begin with the president making his first public statements on his administration's late
the night of the osama bin laden raid? >>> alfonso syria know collects a month's worth of stats in two games. >>> and the university of california study on what kind of cars the biggest jerks on the road drive. good morning, i'm mara schiavocampo. we begin with more uncertainty in egypt. this after security forces cracked down on supporters of the deposed president. newspapers at home and around the world all capturing the deadly violence right on today's front pages this morning. egypt's vice president is out and leaders are wondering if today will be another day of chaos. nbc's aymon moyahyeldin is in cairo this morning. >> reporter: people are trying to bring back a sense of normally after a day that was anything but normal. yesterday police broke up two major protests, this time 24 hours ago those operations are in full swing. the scope of the death toll is still being realized. right now health officials say at least 421 people were killed, more than 3,500 have been injured and that is not the final death toll. they still expect that number to climb in the coming hours, as those fatalit
the country's capacity for self inflicted damage must have astounded even osama bin laden and points out there is always a nightmare of acquiring use -- terrorists acquiring and using these weapons of mass destruction that nothing would give them greater satisfaction that we focus obsessively on the remote possibility and restrict our lives and our liberties accordingly. guest: i think this is always a difficult debate. i think if we step back and look at it, since 9/11, the united states even though we are one of the most open and free countries , has remained, frankly, open and free. we continued to have super bowl's and people travel abroad and robust trade with our allies around the world. so this type of limited action, i would use the analogy of it is like a hurricane. forecasting weather a potential storm and we're battening down the hatches and a few limited places. if the storm passes, great, but this administration is leaning forward and a way i think is professionally responsible and they are being advised not just by political advisers but also the cia -- one of my old agenci
by osama bin laden when he was leading al qaeda. they weren't always followed and they didn't always trigger this kind of response. >> exactly. richard aeengel, thanks to you. there's been a higher threat level, a lot of extra security there but they're telling you this is unrelated to what is going on in the middle east and in north africa. >> it is, andrea. what we're hearing from former and current military and intelligence officials in pakistan is that although it is a separate incident that they're dealing with in pakistan, it is certainly when you take a step back and look at it parallel in many ways. over the weekend in islamabad the capital city of pakistan was shut down. we are told this was prompted by an intelligence intercept of communications, possibly between two taliban leaders, talking about a potential target attack in islamabad. maybe on a pakistani target though. not necessarily on american or international target. we're told that could have been navy force -- sorry. air force target or a navy installation or even an intelligence office in or around the capital. wh
al qaeda, we decimated the top leadership and we killed osama bin laden and the main number two or number three leaders. i don't think anything he said was inaccurate. the reality is al qaeda has been reconstituted in different satellite organizations across the region. so we have al qaeda in libya, for example. al qaeda in the sudan, for example. so it's not just the old al qaeda in afghanistan or iraq. al qaeda is taking different forms and shapes and that's the reality that the state department -- >> repeat my question. he said we decimated al qaeda, okay? he said they were not the threat that they once were, however you wish to paraphrase it. our clips were pretty specific. have they now, thankfully, changed their position about the al qaeda threat? is that what you hear about this announcement? >> no. this is an administration that's been ever vigilant in fighting the threat since they came in office. they were focused about getting osama bin laden from the beginning and they've been executing drone strikes at a rate faster than the bush administration and by the way, that'
who was formerly osama bin laden's secretary. we know that there was chatter. but we don't know the most important things. exactly where, exactly when. so we've seen a blanket response in much of the muslim world and the question is how long can you keep this up. these kind of attacks, these militants, aren't going to be deterred for very long. this might throw off their game. it might, according to analysts we've been speaking to, cause them to change their timing but al qaeda in the iranian peninsula has been there for several years and has been very aggressive for the last several years. >> pete williams, we know that they were increasing security on flights coming from overseas to the united states. they don't see a domestic component to this. but a lot of people are wondering, we know that osama bin laden stopped his people from using cell phones. so what kind of communications -- what kifbd ch kind of chatt eter is intercept presumably from the nsa? >> we don't know if this is on the phone, is it e-mails or some other kind of communication we aren't thinking about. i'm tol
succeeded osama bin laden zawahiri. the two men reportedly agreed that they wanted to do something big. timed to the end of the muslim holy month of ramadan which is right now. and that's what led the united states to close 19 embassies. there they are on the map and consulates in the mideast and africa. there's still a lot that remains unknown including which target. over the weekend, one thing clear from every lawmaker and official with knowledge of the attack, nobody's crying wolf here. this is one of the most serious threats in years. >> been an awful lot of hatter out there, chatter means conversations among terrorists about the planning that's going on, very reminiscent of what we saw pre-9/11. this is the most serious threat that i've seen in the last several years. >> we need to know and realize we're living in an increasingly dangerous world and this many specific threat that we've been briefed on over and over again has reached a new level. >> i must say this is probably one of the most specific incredible threats i've seen perhaps since 9/11 because of the specificity, becau
time they did this, when romney called him an apiecer, obama came out and said tell that to osama bin laden and the 15 leaders of al qaeda i've taken off the field. the notion that this guy is somehow appeasing our enemies is so preposterous. >> do you think they have polled on this, the neocons, they figure after the embarrassment of iraq, they wanted to fight the war. george w. wanted to fight it, and the vice president wanted to fight it. they all wanted to fight it. okay. they decided that we have sort of forgotten that, and now they're coming back. bolton is back, kristol is back. when they say retaliation, their idea of retaliation after 9/11, steve, was going into iraq. retaluation. what does that mean? >> i have never gotten the impression that their world views were radically altered by what happened in the last decade, after the invasion of iraq. i don't think the world view was changed. i think they sense an opportunity within the republican party, the argument in the republican party over foreign policy. whenever they see an opportunity to connect their agenda to oppositio
qaeda's central control has ebbed and flowed. one of the geniuses of what osama bin laden set up, really, was local groups feeding on local grievances, taking advantage of local circumstances to advance the larger cause, which they can unite around. and as they apparently did in the case of this threat in yemen. al qaeda's not like a corporation or a division -- army division in the military. it's a different kind of organization. we have to recognize that. >> it seems that the leader of al qaeda now is not on the run. apparently the reports say we intercepted some type of phone conversation, a conference call of some sort between him and maybe 20 al qaeda officials. maybe it was an internet chat. maybe there were skyping. that sounds silly that al qaeda would be on the phone with a conference call. what do you think led to this tip to close these facilities and basically how do we know as i asked originally that the coast is clear? >> i think there was probably other information in addition to this conference call. i have to stay, just to stop right there, whether it was a conference ca
said about the state of al qaeda the last year. take a look. >> today, al qaeda is on the run and osama bin laden is dead. >> for al qaeda is a shell of its former self. groups must be dealt with. >> the united states is never going to retreat from the world. >> we don't get terrorized. >> senator, a moment ago, you said al qaeda is on the rise. you are not subjecting that al qaeda is stronger than it was pre9/11. >> i'm saying they me taft sized in a way they may pose threat threats throughout the middle east, they can destabilize missions, have acts of terror literally everywhere and there the perception throughout the mid aefeasdle east that there i policy and that there is accommodation it that reality. when they believe that, then you are going to see extremist element on the rise and clearly they are throughout the middle east. action of closing embassies shows they are mounting threats everywhere in the middle east against the united states of america and they are playing in ways that is going to pose challenge to the united states for years to come. >> you talked earlier about r
issues. look at the fact he took down osama bin laden. however, this is an issue, peter, that continues to dog this president, of course, snowden was offered temporary asylum in russia. these are things that are going to overshadow the goals president obama mapped out for his second term, including immigration reform, which right now seems like a huge up hill batter. peter? >> thank you. >> thank you, peter. >>> despite the possibility of security forces dispersing the entrenched protesters. thousands hunkered down in two separate sit-in sites in cairo. more than 250 people have been killed since morsi was removed from power by the military on july 3rd. meanwhile, american embassies in egypt and 17 other countries across the middle east and africa reopened sunday. that terror threat, linked with al qaeda triggered the decision to shut the embassies a week ago. the u.s. embassy in yemen remains closed. peace of mind is important when you're running a successful business. so we provide it services you can rely on. with centurylink as your trusted it partner, you'll experience reliable upt
to osama bin laden in pakistan directly to the top al qaeda official in yemen or whether it was more of a roundabout relayed communication. in any event, regardless of how it was constructed, it's the wording that so alarmed officials in which the leader of al qaeda in pakistan has basically given the order or approval of what the two are believed to be saying is a significant event, a big terror attack that would have significant strategic consequences, as the way they described it. and that is what has led to all the changes that we've seen in the past several days. >> let me play, pooeete, what congressman peter king said on "morning joe" this morning. >> this one was so precise as to the nature of the attack. there were some dates given in there. the sources were so credible that there's no doubt -- >> all the threats overseas, right? no domestic threats? >> no, i would not say that. it does not say where the threat is going to be. it could be anywhere in the world. >> anywhere in the world, pete. we know that. back to this intercepted communication, how was this information made
still face. >> because of you, osama bin laden is no more. because of you "caught on camera's" top ranks have been hammered. even though the decimated the al qaeda leadership that attacked us on 9/11, al qaeda affiliates and like-minded extremists still threaten our homeland, still threaten our diplomatic facilities, still threaten our businesses abroad. we've got to take these threats seriously and do all we can to confront them. >> as we speak american diplomats and members of the military are serving in harm's way overseas. it's time for us all to unite. but some republican politicians think it's time to take pot shots at the president. >> it causes our allies to be concerned. >> these al qaeda types are on steroids thinking we're weaker. >> you don't have to close your embassies like cowards to go running away. >> a bunch of cowards? that's beyond offensive. and some right wing pundits think the terror threat is just another excuse to attack the president. >> they're lying to themselves. they've been lying to us. >> a year ago the president said al qaeda is on the run. and now we see
/11 generation, we are accomplishing what we set out to do. because of you, osama bin laden is no more. because of you, al qaeda's top ranks have been hammered. the core of al qaeda in afghanistan in pakistan is on the way to defeat. that happened because of you. because of you, more afghans are reclaiming their communities. their markets, their schools, their towns. and they have a chance to forge their own future. because of you, more afghans are trained and stepping up and defending their own country. because of you, and to preserve the gains you fought and bled for, we're going to make sure that afghanistan is never again a source of attacks against our country. that happened because of you. so the war in afghanistan is still going, for you, that means fewer deployments, more training time, preparing for the future, getting back to what marines do better than anybody else on earth, amphibious operations. it means more time here on the homefront with your families, your wives, your husbands, your kids. but of course, the end of the war in afghanistan doesn't mean the end of threats to our na
to say about the state of al qaeda over the last year. >> today, al qaeda is on the run and osama bin laden is dead. for al qaeda a shell of its former self. groups like aqap must be dealt with. the united states is never going to retreat from the world. we don't get terrorized. >> senator, a moment ago you said that al qaeda is on the rise. you're not suggesting that al qaeda is stronger than it was pre-9/11? >> i'm saying they have metastasized in a way they may pose great threats throughout the middle east, that they can destabilize nations, that they can commit acts of terror literally anywhere and there's the perception throughout the middle east that there's no american leadership, that's no policy, and then the various actors in the region are accommodating to that reality. and when they believe that, then you are going to see extremist elements on the rise and clearly they are throughout the middle east. the action of closing these embassies shows that they're able to mount threats everywhere in the middle east against the united states of america and they are playing in ways
libya, and putting the special forces into pakistan to get to osama bin laden, those were cases where the president wanted to be careful and get to a specific end game. here, i think we're not looking for an open-ended military conflict. but the military strategy is probably on the president's desk. that the joint chiefs are probably looking at right now. i've been in some of the rooms where the military options have been discussed. the number one reason, to degrade his capabilities, to deter him from doing this again. we have lost some of it, it is to hold at risk something that assad values. so if we can put in our sight those things we values, the military command in control, the military headquarters, the rocket-firing capabilities, and some of his air offensive, that can be accomplished. >> can that be accomplished with military strikes? >> it can be accomplished, we just put on station a fifth guided missile destroyer, the uss stout came to the eastern area today. we'll have enough fire power, while we would love to have allies like the brits, we don't need them for fire power,
. the most famous of all in 1998 when they were launched at osama bin laden in afghanistan only to have three years later launch the 911 attacks against the u.s. >> you're right, indeed. thank you, mick. joining me in studio, congressman gregory meeks, a member of the house foreign affairs committee. representative meeks, i understand you were briefed last night in a conference call. tell me what you learned from that call. >> i learned, first of all, the president has not made a decision yet, which i think is a good thing. >> contingent upon what? do you know what it is will be the tipping point? >> i don't know what it is. i hope he looks at it in its totality. you know, i was with the president most of the time. but i said from the beginning what is beginning is what should be the united states doing something unilateral. what is concerning me is all the reporting i'm hearing now. it's not the international community, it's the united states. it's not nato, it is the united states. >> france said they will offer support. >> there's so many other countries. we don't know, for example, where
with singing songs to osama bin laden and the 9/11 terror attacks. there's been a radical change in a lot of the makeup of the armed opposition which just doesn't look like the peaceful protests that we saw 2 1/2 years ago starting, calling for democracy and freedom after 40 years of dictatorships fr from the assad leadership. >> where does that leave the assad regime right now. fred flepleitgen, a short time , ben wedeman was speaking to members in the regime who told him they were relieve bid this delay, that president obama has put the brakes on at least for ten days asking congress for a vote. the syrian regime, he says, relieved and perhaps even planning a new offensive to squeeze in there over the next several days. before you left, what did you see in terms of movement in the regime's assets and what have you heard over the last several days? >> the regime has been stepping up its effort, especially in the damascus area over the past couple of days. the interesting thing was it really coincided with that alleged chemical weapons attack. many people on the ground were talking to us
qaeda. sources are telling cnn that osama bin laden's successor, ayman al-zawahiri sent a letter saying, do something. the chatter set off all of this. nick payton walsh is watching this developing. nick, it has been five days since we first became aware of this terrorist threat and what we have seen today, the threat is clearly still ongoing. so why else would the u.s., why would briton, those folks be getting out of yemen? >> reporter: well, certainly the threat whilst being starved, anything from west africa, bangladesh to yemen, even though they thought it would be last sunday, it's ongoing. no one is clear where this is coming from. the state department is continuing to evaluate new information. that withdrawal of diplomatic staff you've been talking about, that has been emotional for a couple of days. the u.s. did repeat its normal travel advice to most americans to get out of yemen and never travel there anyway. a certain escalation on their part today. many asking is it possibly the drone strikes overnight against militants in yemen that may have contributed to that that now bri
of osama bin laden and the doctor was burned as a source and his life was put in jeopardy. limits numbers of people could know what internal al-qaeda deliberations are so talk from the sours is risky. >> heather: the month of august usually active for terrorist organizations. 15 years ago this week, twin bombings in kenya, tans -- tanzania claimed lives. next month marks the benghazi attack in libya that killed the ambassador and four americans. is this a reaction to benghazi? >> guest: they are linked. they are clearly a sense in the wider world we have switched from offense to defense in the war on terror. islamists since in this area that they have opportunity. while we haveack our commitment in the broader middle east the threat has not gone down. it wasn't a problem with the former president. it wasn't a problem with our president but had to do with the nature of the ideology and the armaments spreading in the area. >> heather: thank you for joining us. >> gregg: republicans waging a big family nude pitting chris christie against rand paul. our political needers are here and will wei
report on the way. al-jazeera known for receiving and broadcasting osama bin laden's video messages, now it's getting ready to launch a news network here in the u.s. our news watch panel weighs in on those prospects next. pu jon: amid all the controversy over the roll out of obamacare the president going on offensive, blasting the republicans who are critical of his signature piece of legislation. he is charging gop lawmakers never offered health care plans never offered health care plans jim angle is live in washington with a fact check. >> reporter: president obama says republicans are trying to roll out obamacare without, he says, alternatives. >> they used to say they will replace it with something better. there is not even pretense they will replace it with something better. >> for the president to say that the no member of congress hat not put up solution to health care analysis is not true. >> reporter: dr. pryce has his own plan that was passed before obamacare and his isn't the only one. >> the president has incredibly short memory. he seems to have forgotten his campaign spent
that osama bin laden thought had the best chance of really being powerful and causing a long-term threat. the information is vague. it is from intercepts. although it's not, thank goodness, the meta data from the u.s. because there's no evidence of their being contact with somebody in the u.s. to be captured in that metadata. there's a reference in what's been heard to the enemy, not specific, which leads people to think it's probably the u.s., but could also be western europe. finally, there's some indication that what makes this so scary is that the chatter is going back and forth in part between al qaeda in yemen and core al qaeda which is loosely based still in pakistan, the tribal areas, afghanistan, maybe even the top figure in al qaeda now with bin laden gone, amman zawahiri. this looks scarier than some of the chatter they pick up. >> put this in a perspective over the past ten years, let's say. it used to be we heard of the chatter going on around the clock. we had a discussion yesterday on "meet the press" about the about of al qaeda to still strike, compared to five, six, seve
the navy seal team six. that's the same unit that killed osama bin laden. >>> she wanted to see a rhino up close. so a woman at the denver zoo made an extra $60 for a special meet and greet. but the animal wasn't on board, not as friendly. he attacked her, biting her finger when she reached out to feed it. >> he's not in trouble. we do not believe this was an aggressive action. i think this was just a very terrible, unfortunate accident. >> gretchen: no word on her condition this morning. the denver zoo has suspended its rhino meet and greet program. i guess it's a good idea. >>> we showed you the video. a woman gets called on stage to sing a duet with kristen chenowith. little did kristen know the fan could really belt it out. ♪ ♪ >> oh, sing it, sing it! >> gretchen: we just found out that fan who happens to be a vocal coach was just invited back to the stage. the hollywood bowl asking her to perform again next month. you never know, eric. you've got to be in the right place at the right time. >> eric: you know why the rhino bit the lady's finger off? the zoo charged 60 bucks. the rh
their safety concerns in this case and look at what the president has done, he is responsible for killing osama bin laden, using ground strikes to decimate al qaeda, building on the policies of the bush administration regarding torture. host: judy is next, idaho, good morning. appreciate the call. caller: i have two things to say. the first is quick and for your producers. you read almost all twitter tweets these days and hardly any e-mails. it is very hard to express a complicated idea in less than 200 characters. i wish you would pay more attention to the e-mail. host: ok. caller: to the subject at hand, i take the present threat seriously. but not as seriously as they wouldn't if these agencies had not been a exaggerating and combing length the effectiveness of their programs and the thoroughness -- i think they have undermined their own credibility by doing so. i wish they would stop it so that we would know when something should be taken seriously and when it should not. host: judy, thank you for the call from idaho. at can join the conversation facebook as well. george says -- host: chris
of success. it would have taken a number of steps to decimate that group's leadership, most importantly osama bin laden. we've made clear we remain concerned about the al-qaeda affiliates throughout the world and first on the list is always aqap. i assume having a lot of affiliates is like having a as i understand indicated radio show. >> absolutely. >> different program directors have different thoughts about things. >> do they take minutes at the board meetings? stephanie: hard to keep all the affiliates happy all the time. >> jihad! stephanie: got a massage relations sometimes. [ laughter ] >> say that again. stephanie: massage ♪ magic wand ♪ >> you like that? you like that? stephanie: like that, better now? >> why do i think you're only half kidding? stephanie: have to do a little damage control here and there. the president talking about the n.s.a. program that led to hearing the conference call. obama: i had the programs reviewed. we put in additional safeguards for congressional oversight and federal oversight that there notice spying on americans. >> well, hmm, that ship's kind of
to do. of you, osama bin laden is no more. because of you, al qaeda's top ranks have been hammered. core of al qaeda, in afghanistan and pakistan, is on its way to defeat. that happened because of you. because of you, more afghans are reclaiming their immunities, markets, schools, their towns, and they have a chance to forge their own future. areuse of you, more afghans trained and stepping up in defending their own country. and preserving the gains we -- you fought and fled for, we will ensure afghan is never again a source of attack against our country. applause]d that happened because of you. the war in afghanistan will and for you, that means fewer deployments, training time, getting back to what marines do better than anyone else on earth. it means more time here on the homefront with your families, your wives, your husband, your kids. , the end of the war in afghanistan does not mean the end of threats to our nation. as i have said before, he's an -- even as we decimated the al qaeda leadership that attacked us on 9/11, al qaeda affiliates and like-minded extremists still threaten
. that is no longer the case. osama bin laden is no longer their plotting against the u.s. and our allies. it does not mean there is not a continuing threat posed by al not mean ithat does has not changed in its way of using force. there are other ways to work with the international community to reach objectives. the president took a trip to africa where he highlighted some of the strong relationships the united states has there. this is the work that the president vowed to do when he took office, which is to rebuild some of the relationships that were in tatters when this president entered the oval office. that strengthens the united states on the international scene. it is good for broader national security interests. but it is something that the president and members of his team have to work on something -- have to work on every day. >> more than 100,000 people have been killed. that is effectively like wiping out the entire city of south bend, indiana. how many more people need to die before the u.s. does employ some use of force beyond humanitarian aid? >> what the president does is he is eva
